A generalisation of the so-called extended irreversible thermodynamics (eit) is proposed. It leads, in a natural manner, to evolution equations of the Ginzburg-Landau type for the fast non-conserved variables. In this generalised scheme the thermal conductivity can be written as a continued-fraction expansion. This corresponds to a macroscopic analogue of some well accepted microscopic theories. © 1986 IOP Publishing Ltd.
